Lately, actress/producer Brittany Murphy has received more attention for her off-screen plastic surgeries than she has for her on-screen talents. Brittany’s lip augmentation has been well-publicized (really, there’s no hiding it), but has she had some work on her nose as well? The Hollywood gossip-mongers have been speculating on Murphy’s alleged rhinoplasty ever since she debuted that plump new pout: has 31 year-old Brittany Murphy become a plastic surgery poster girl?
There was a time when current glamazon actress Brittany Murphy was plain and chubby and largely ignored by moviegoers and TV fans alike. Watch old episodes of Boy Meets World, and there’s Murphy as lead gal Topanga’s giggly sidekick; in 1996′s Clueless, Brittany plays fashion-disaster Tai, the make-over “project” of her more popular classmates. However, in recent years, Brittany Murphy has re-invented herself and her career with a dramatic weight loss and more prominent (and sexy) film roles. Murphy played new wife to dreamy Ashton Kutcher (whom she also dated in real life) in 2003′s Just Married and vamped her way across the screen as sultry waitress-with-a-heart-of gold Shellie in 2005′s Sin City.
In recent years, Murphy has kept a low profile since her projects (Little Black Book, The Ramen Girl— did these duds even seen the inside of a movie theater?) have tanked with both critics and fans. But look for Brittany to release her first album in 2009 and look for her plus-sized lips splashed across gossip pages right now. Seriously, if you’re flying into LAX anytime soon, be sure to look out the window, Brittany’s king-sized kisser is surely visible from such heights. Apparently, Ms Murphy is no longer satisfied with all diet, exercise, and a well-paid make-up artist can provide and has gone under the knife— or at least under the collagen-filled syringe.
Murphy dropped some serious poundage after her child-star years, which resulted in her face becoming more defined. Indeed, all her features were sharpened by the change. But in recent weeks, Brittany’s nose has become the subject of much scrutiny. And fans can’t help but wonder: good make-up or a good surgeon? True, shading and professionally-placed concealer can sometimes work miracles, but Brittany’s nose appears to have slimmed down on both sides. The bridge of Brittany Murphy’s nose appears straighter and more defined. So, did Brittany partake in full-on rhinoplasty or some less-invasive shaping procedure?
Brittany Murphy never had serious bridge bump or an over-sized nose, which are the two main reasons to opt for surgery. Still, Murphy’s nose is smooth and now seems to compliment her features. Her people aren’t talking, but photos don’t lie. If she has had work done, its exactly the type of plastic surgery someone with Brittany’s beauty and charisma should be getting: subtle. Unlike her giant, laughable lips, Brittany’s nose is only slightly altered (if, in fact, altered at all) and enhances her overall appearance rather than creating a facial distraction.
Too often celebrities go overboard with their surgeries rather than sticking with discreet “refreshers” that keep friends, family, and the general public guessing. Truth be told, would you rather have friends comment on obvious surgical work or ask if you just had a restful vacation? As long as Murphy’s keeping mum, there’s no way to know for sure if her lips and nose were part of some buy one get one beauty bonus or if her nose is merely some photographers’ lighting trick. Let the debate rage on as 2009 brings not only Brittany Murphy’s debut album (and the chance to critique her pipes), but two new movie thrillers, The White Hotel and Deadline.
